You're in my heart

Hello all!  Another fortnight has gone by, and that means another fab challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.  This time, the challenge theme is Valentines day.

Here is my design team card for the Challenge.

I thought I would go for something a little untraditional.  This cutie mouse from Penny Black showering down flowers just called out to me so I gave in.  The image is colored with Pro Markers and the die cut layers are distressed with Broken China and Barn Door Distress Ink.  The sentiment is also Penny Black.  I die cut the layers with a Grand Nesties die (labels 23).  The backing layer is also done using the Grand Calibur and the Fancy Flourish Grand Impressability.

I stamped over the die cut layers with Versa ink using a Majestix flower stamp.  Then a bit of purple organza ribbon and bow and I thought it was good to go.

Please make sure to check out the blogs of the other Crafty Boots Challenges design team members and definitely join in for the Challenge.

I would also like to to enter this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Ann's Challenge #58 - Love is in the Air
Crafting When We Can - Valentine/Love
Sentimental Sundays Challenge 88 - Feel the Love (plus sentiment)
Addicted to Stamps - Challenge 23 Valentines / Love

I hope you like my card.  Please leave a comment if the mood strikes you.  I love to read them.  Also, don't be afraid to offer constructive criticism / tips and tricks ...  I am always striving to improve.

Thanks for looking and have a lovely day!

xx Denise

This is an understated and romantic Valentines - I love its very clean lines and that it is cute without being overly so. I think the balance is pretty perfect and I hope the recipient likes it as much as I do!
